Tips for Dealing with Intoxication
Nov 18, 2016
Some workers are employed to provide direct support to young people at times and in places where there are higher than normal levels of alcohol and other drug consumption. This includes late-night entertainment precincts, music festivals, Schoolies week and other celebrations and events. Dovetail developed a fact sheet in conjunction with Gold Coast Youth Services Chill Out Zone Program back in 2013, and we thought that it's worth re-visiting. The fact sheet includes some of the signs that an intoxicated young person might need support, tips to assist in responding, responding to injuries, sexual assault or responding to a young person who is unresponsive.
